Why Erika Chetlain chose Anna Maria Island

We purchased the house this year and have spent many lovely weeks in tropical temperatures and island living; creating wonderful memories for our family and friends. Anna Maria and the island is truly a special experience.

Whether we are taking walks to get coffee or ice cream or visiting the pier, sunbathing, or watching wildlife -- it is always easy to get around.

Or take a drive south and enjoying the other beaches and communicites, gives you

and your visitors the choice of many experiences.

It provides the island feeling yet all near by ammenties in short distance.

We are a young family with two kids so having activities to enjoy is important; whether it is jogging, bike rides, kayaking, lunch on the beach, eating out at great island restaurants or just relax together-- a place to love!

What makes this house unique

All our guest really enjoy the property and becomes a favorite family and friend destination!

Absolutely Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

After reading all the reviews we decided to book this home. This literally has THE BEST location on the entire island, we walked and rode bikes rented from Beach Bums everywhere! We have a 2 and 4 year old and the house is absolutely ideal with the BEST beach right outside and an enclosed area with chairs to just let the kids play outside! Dennis the owner is PHENOMENAL!!! He answered all of our questions, and is THE BEST property manager we have ever had the pleasure to meet. The house has kayaks, beach chairs, sand toys, child bike seats, a child's bike helmet, floating rafts and more fun stuff! I am an absolute germaphobe and always clean the houses we stay in again...I could not find a drop of dust or dirt to clean at this house! The house keeping staff is amazing. Dennis stocks dish soap, and some basics like a few coffee filters, foil, hand soap etc...which is nice and we called Shore Chores ahead of our arrival and they delivered all of our groceries which made the trip completely stress free! The house has a drip coffee maker and a keurig. Can't say enough great things about this house! Cannot wait to go back!!! Thanks for everything Dennis!

Island Beauty!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing! The pictures on the website do not do it justice! When you walk in the front door, the first thing you see is the beautiful blue waters of the bay! The floor to ceiling windows make you feel as if you are right on the water!! The house is very roomy and spacious. It has starter supplies of paper towels, toilet paper and dishwashing tabs for the dishwasher, the garage has a large assortment of beach floats, toys, kayaks, beach chairs, beach umbrellas and fishing poles. For those that need white noise to sleep, the house has a box fan as well. The master bath also has a hairdryer, as well as plenty of bath towels and lots of beach towels, so you don't need to bring that with you. The house is inviting and comfortable, from the master bedroom, you wake up each morning with a view of the Bay's clear, warm waters! This end of the island was very quiet and hardly any beach traffic at all, we felt like we were the only ones on the island! This house is right on the beach, 12 steps out the back french doors and you are in the water. We watched the dolphins every morning around 10am, and found some amazing shells, the sand is white and baby powder soft, the water is clear and shallow. It is a very short walk to the Anna Maria City Pier, Two Scoops ice cream, the Waterfront Restaurant, and many of the cute, island shops! Our family had such a relaxing, fun vacation. This is our second year to vacation on beautiful Anna Maria and we hope to rent this beautiful home again. We cannot thank Dennis Miller enough for sharing his piece of paradise with us, he met us at the house and gave us a quick tour, he let us know that if we needed anything he was only a phone call or text away! We rented a golf cart from Lindy at Lux Carts, she was wonderful as well, a golf cart is a fun way to tour the island and all it has to offer. I could go on and on, but space is limited!! If I had to recommend anything, it would be to have more seating on the back patio area. Again thank you Dennis!! Till next year!!!

Beautiful property with great location and incredible views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 had a wonderful stay! The property is gorgeous! The home is well appointed with the living quarters on the main level with a recreation and relaxation area on the second floor with incredible views of Tampa Bay! The home is located in a very desirable location. It is close to shopping and restaurants yet very quiet and private. The beach is beautiful and we spent time shelling and exploring tidal pools during low tide. It is a short walk to the Anna Maria City Pier. The kayaks were great! We went out into the bay and enjoyed exploring and fishing. Dennis was awesome throughout the entire process. The home was clean and ready when we arrived. There are several excursions and activities to do while on and around the Island...Kayak adventures, EcoTours, shopping, shelling, water sports and fishing to just list a few.

Beautiful place and right on the water. It was so peaceful. We did get to see a manatee and dolphin came by daily. The sunrise was awesome. We enjoyed the kayaks and the water was perfect for that. Shells, sanddollars, birds were great to see! We had everything we needed for the perfect vacation in the house. Very comfortable and the view was the best!!! Thank you Dennis! I want to come back as soon as I can!
